Lie #3: The reason you are not successful is because you do not have enough exposure

Unfortunately too many entrepreneurs take this heart. Success is not always about being “seen”, it’s about being intentional, present and memorable.
Being “seen” does not equate to making an impact and being effective. Large brands spend millions of dollars in marketing and advertisements and have epic fails. Your life is not exempt.

Also, don’t fall into the you need to have a “gimmick” or be a “big personality” trap. If you have a larger-than-life, charismatic personality, learn how to use it to your advantage. But if you do not, please do yourself a favor: don’t copy or mimic someone that does. Your success hinges on your authenticity, as the following success story illustrates:

Mockler was the CEO of Gillette from 1975 to 1991 and during his leadership faced three take-over attacks that threatened to destroy the company. If the company capitulated, the executive team stood to receive great compensation, but Mockler fought for the future greatness of the organization he believed in and won. He went on to lead Gillette to amazing growth and fantastic returns. Publicity-shy Mockler was humble and gracious man who declined most of the requests to be interviewed and photographed, but no one who knew this amazing leader have mistaken his modesty for weakness.

“You can accomplish anything in life, provided that you do not mind who gets the credit.” – Harry S. Truman
